The SPORE in GI Cancer
At Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, two NCI SPORE grants support research in GI and breast cancers. The SPORE in GI Cancer is one of only five in the country and focuses on innovative, translational research to reduce and prevent colorectal cancers, a leading cause of cancer deaths in both men and women. Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center was the fourth cancer center in the United States to receive an NCI GI SPORE grant in 2002 and received a third round of support from the NCI in 2013.
